The role of the Earth’s core is essential to our understanding of many geophysical and planetary problems. The core is the source of the Earth’s magnetic field and core-mantle coupling is responsible for some of the irregularities in the rotation of the Earth. Knowledge of the core comes from many different fields, of which seismology and geomagnetism are the most important, and discussions of these disciplines form a large part of the book.
